Arrival Story:
Kimberly, her sister Michelle, and her mother Diamond all came to me as rescues after their owner threw them outside and wasn't taking care of them.

Kimberly is comfortable and not in any pain but she's getting ready to cross the Rainbow Bridge very soon, probably within the next few days. She is nearing the end of a very long war with CRF, isn't responding to her medications, and although she's still eating and drinking on her own, she now requires twice a day subcutaneous fluid therapy to keep her hydrated. At 10:01 pm May 23, 2013 Kimberly crossed the Rainbow Bridge.

The Last Forum I Posted In:
CKD 15 yr old kitty

Kimberly's tongue often protrudes from her mouth because she has almost no teeth left at all. She's survived with CRF for over 3 years now, longer than any other cat I've ever had.

While Kim's pet peeve is being groomed, she also isn't able to adequately groom herself. Luckily she's a cat with wonderful temperament and attempting to walk away is the only thing she tries to do when I'm grooming her. She's one of those rare cats that's always been easy to live with, well behaved, never causing any trouble at all.

Although it doesn't seem big enough to express what I feel, I Kimberly, want to say thank you so very much to everyone for all your friendship, prayers, the emerald, the beating hearts especially, the rosettes, and the treats. A loving purring thank you to each and every one of you!

Kimberly crossed the Rainbow Bridge on 5-23-13 at 10:01 pm. She is buried in the big catnip garden.

Thank you for remembering angel Kimberly on her birthday!

May 23, morning...
It makes me happy to be able to make some friends before I cross the Rainbow Bridge. Mom & I believe I will cross the Bridge today or tonight. My kidneys are shrunken and worn out after fighting CRF for over 3 years. In spite of fluid therapy (and I've still been drinking on my own too) I keep dehydrating very quickly now. My spirit is getting tired of being held back and trapped here and I think I'm ready to shed this old worn out broken down earthly body and take on my brand new spirit body that will work perfectly forever. I'm not in any pain though. The other kitties in my kitty family have been taking turns spending some last quality time with me before its time for me to make my journey across the Bridge.

I now have to have a heating pad under my bed to help me stay warm enough. I also had to have a really large dose of fluids, as big as the vet felt my body could safely take. Mom has to change my bed alot because I'm now too weak to get up. I still am not in any pain. In fact, I sort of feel like I'm floating in some kind of hazy semi-conscious zone like you do when you're part asleep and part awake, partly aware of what's going on but at the same time you're also partly asleep dreaming. According to the vet, this is a merciful side effect of the buildup of toxins in my system that my kidneys no longer are able to filter out. However, I'm beginning to see something made of a beauty of multiple colors unlike anything on earth up ahead of me and I can make out the shapes of a huge group of kitties ahead of me too.

Mom's been spending a lot of time holding me on my bed in her lap, stroking me and talking to me. Buddha is right by my side, so is Lily. I've known Buddha and Lily all my life. I remember when Lily was a kitten! Weak as I am, I'm still able to purr although my earthly body makes me feel like I'm chained in a cold heavy prison. I feel I want to break those chains, bust out of my earthly prison, and be free but like any major new life change, the thought of breaking out of the earthly body I know and leaving it behind forever for the unknown world ahead is very SCARY too.

Shortly before 10 pm...
The beautiful multicolored gleaming shape ahead of me is becoming clearer now. I don't know how to describe it because even the most beautiful rainbow on Earth is dull compared to this! I see Hallie, Whoops, Mew, Cali, Midnight, and many more family members I used to know on Earth. I also see my new Angel Catster friends with them! I can feel the hopes & prayers of all my family and of all my new Catster kitty and human friends too. Wow seeing all this beauty and family and so many new friends gives me courage and determination and makes my spirit feel even stronger.
I can't stand it anymore, I can't take being imprisoned in this cold heavy useless earthly body anymore. I simply have GOT to be FREE! It's time for me to break out of this prison. Although my earthly body will fight me, it's too weak to hold me in it. I should be able to escape fairly easily and with a minimum of struggle.

10:01 pm...Peacefully, with only a minimum of death struggle, I DID IT! I broke free of my old cold dead useless earthly body. My angel family members & friends all encouraged me and they even came to the middle of the Rainbow Bridge, welcomed me, and escorted me to the other side of the Bridge as they were telling me about the wonderful new world there that awaits me.
